The Official Line
This CD was originally put out under “Ensonic Music Productions” in 1998. It features Ryan Oliver (Dogbus Music, defined by what we steal), Colin Crowley (Sunlit Ambush), Jeremiah Stewart (Sunlit Ambush) and Hewan Woolley. When Dogbus Music was created in 2000, we took control of the records under Ensonic Music Production. EPM was the crowning jewel. In the day of The Fheds, Fat Chance and Kind there was Ensonic. On October 2nd 1998 they put out EPM, an alternative rock record that gives you a pretty good idea where the future members of Sunlit Ambush and defined by what we steal were when they were 15, 16 and 17 years old.
This album is fun and deserves to be heard by anyone who is interested in the history of the local music scene. It’s family friendly, hard-rocking and it was recorded the day after a really bitchin’ party.

From the Artist
Feb 23 2011-This was my first band and I remember having a blast doing this. We used to infuse this band into every facet of our lives and even played some decent shows too.
We had a penchant for soup and pornography and also worked in pro wrestling episodes whenever possible.
I’ll never forget the first show I ever played with Ensonic at a public school for a United Way cause and sitting there and being super nervous and hoping that all my basic gear would work. I forgot to turn on my distortion volume and the song started with that. My first chord ever was a silenced mistake.
I also remember winning a battle of the bands and two fellow students being super mad. I can’t remember their name because I was in Ensonic and they weren’t.
I think one had a crush on me. (And rightfully so. I was in Ensonic!)
I also remember playing with Klip Squad. And they were super drunk another time and very funny as well.
I guess that was a great way to start in the band scene.
Anyways, happy to see Ryan putting the time in for this cause and I look forward to hearing some of the other forgotten bands of CKL as well.”
